Remember Chris Noth character on The Equalizer? He was k*lled off last season due to allegations of sexual assault!
Variety shared back in April,
Chris Noth was fired from CBS’ “The Equalizer” in December after being accused of sexual assault by two women. On Sunday, the drama revealed how Noth’s character, William Bishop, was written off the Queen Latifah-led show.
The last episode of “The Equalizer” that Noth appeared in was the Season 2 episode “Separated,” which aired Jan. 2 and was filmed prior to him being dropped from the series on Dec. 20. Six episodes have aired since that installment, none of which featured Noth’s Bishop, including tonight’s “Pulse,” which gave the in-universe explanation for where the character has been and concluded with his off-screen death.”
So what was Queen Latifah’s reaction to Chris being fired from the show?
She seemed okay with the decision.
“It’s still surreal. It’s such a dicey, delicate situation that requires a great deal of respect. That’s a personal thing that he’s going to have to deal with,” she said in a recent interview with People. “And my feeling is justice has to prevail regardless. I just want the right things to be done, you know?”
When asked how the show would handle the departure of his character, William Bishop, she said, “We are figuring out what we want to do creatively on the show and how we’re going to deal with that character. Chris’s character is obviously a big part of the show, and it was amazing chemistry.”
It was later announced that Noth’s character Bishop, a former CIA director, was revealed to have died in a plane crash he was investigating for his old bosses.
